Bead Table Wednesday - Art Bead Scene Challenge & Goal Setting for 2017

Today on my Bead Table Wednesday I shared my three creations for the Art Bead Scene's December Challenge. Here is one of the three panels for the stained glass window by Marc Chagall that was our inspiration. One of my goals for 2017 is to create jewelry for each Art Bead Scene challenge - won't you join me? 

My necklace featured long linear qualities like the stained glass window. The pewter stick with 'Chagall-like' designs is by Green Girl Studio. The enamel bird by Gardanne Beads. Hollow lampwork bead by Stephanie Ann Studios and bumpy lampwork by Sea of Glass and one of my polymer clay disks.

My first asymmetrical earrings! Birds by Gardanne, widsom charm by Green Girl Studios.

This piece was also inspired by the challenge but was gifted to my younger sister. Maple leaf by Gardanne Beads, round ceramic by White Clover Kiln, Humblebeads disk and lampwork disk by Julie Miller. Clasp by Anna Bronze. Unfortunately the focal bead was by a Michigan artist that has retired.

I also made these feather earrings from headpins by Artisticaos. Which became a few project on the Art Bead Scene here.


New Year's Goal Resources:


I highly recommend the biz ebook. It may look artsy-fartsy but it's a really a sneaky business plan for creative that makes you want to fill in the fun workbook while you dream of the possibilities for 2017.


Where to find a VA - Fiverr or Upwork (formerly Odesk). I've found VA's through both of these sites. 


Join me on Friday to wish a farewell to 2016 in beady style! It's a Bead Bash - there will be giveaways, free projects, inspiration for 2017 and lots and lots of beads. 

I will have bead bundles at 30-40% and new beads to share. 

Join my Humblebeads VIP Party Group so you don't miss the fun. See you at 2pm EST for this end of the year bead party!

Wow! I especially love those first two pieces with the Gardanne birds. Yummy! You always manage so much great art bead goodness in your jewelry.

Hi Heather,

I had to view your Wednesday bead table on Saturday & just finished viewing it. Thank you! It was wonderful & as always, you always manage to make me laugh out loud at some point throughout the video.

I have to say that you are such a wealth of great information, which is greatly appreciated. A lot of your advice about the "process" of setting goals is right on target for me. After listening to your steps. it now makes sense of what I'm doing wrong. The reason I fall short in getting things done is that I'm always looking at the big picture which is overwhelming to me. I was only seeing Step A to the end while working a full time job, which was only seeing myself up for failure.

Now I will create specific goals, make a list of 6 must do's with due dates & make more progress than I have been doing.

You're the best! Thank you so much.
